Two teams in the hunt for a top four place in La Liga this term will clash on Sunday, as Real Sociedad take on Real Betis. The home side is currently two points ahead of their rivals this weekend, as both look to bounce back after suffering defeats in their previous fixtures.
La Liga Preview
This should be a very entertaining game in La Liga this weekend, as both Real Sociedad and Real Betis look solid contenders for the fourth Champions League spot in the Spanish top-flight. Both have started the season in good form, but both will be looking to bounce back after recent defeats.
Sociedad currently sits in the fourth spot in the La Liga standings, as they have won seven of the eleven games that they have played this term. Only the top two in the league have claimed more victories than Sociedad so far this term. However, they were beaten in their previous fixture, as they lost 1-0 against Real Valladolid.
Betis weren’t able to take advantage of that defeat, as their poor run of results in La Liga continued. They now come into this fixture having won just once in their previous five fixtures in the Spanish top-flight. During that run, they have been beaten on two occasions and have been held to two draws.
Betis were slightly unfortunate in their previous fixture, as they were just edged out by Atletico Madrid, losing 2-1 at home. Nabil Fekir did manage to break through the Atletico resistance, but it was ultimately too little too late.
Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Head to Head
Two of the previous three fixtures between these sides have ended in draws, which includes a 0-0 draw in this exact fixture in April. Betis were the last winners in this fixture, as they won 4-0 at home in December 2021. However, Sociedad’s only win in the previous five was a 3-0 away success in October 2020.
Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Prediction
This looks set to be a very interesting fixture in La Liga on Sunday, and both sides have the qualities that could win this match. However, the slight preference is for Betis, as Sociedad’s focus may be on their double-header in the Europa League to secure top spot in their group.
